  • Dear 3BC Family,

    Once again Id like to thank you onbehalf of our staff for your expressionof love through the Christmas StaffLove Offering! Not only through theoffering, but through your cards, gifts,and goodies, you are so wonderful tolove on us! Theres not a betterchurch than 3BC and we love you!

    Its hard to believe that its 2015! So Iwant to ask youhow are you askingGod to work in your life for His gloryin 2015? Are you asking God to workin your life in 2015? I know I am.Here are 3 areas that the Lord hasbrought to my mind for our church:

    1) That we would see more peoplecome to faith in our Lord Jesus Christthrough our church,

    2) That we would see more peoplepraying daily,

    3) That we would be a more effectivewitness to our baseball diamond.

    Youll hear much more about these 3things this month as I lay out somestrategies for how well try toaccomplish these things.

    Third Baptist Church is first the Lordschurch, then its our church. Becauseit is our church, we all play a role inbeing an instrument in our Lordshand for reaching the lost and

    discipling the saints. You are not at3BC by accident. The Holy Spiritbrought you here. Now each of usmust find our place, use the gifts ourLord has given us, and go to work.

    I really believe that 2015 will be theyear we look back on and say, Thatswhen God started His work in us thatspread out all over RutherfordCounty! Are you praying that? I am!Our county needs Jesus. People needto hear the gospel! Will we fulfill ourcalling to be salt and light?

    As we begin 2015, may our Lord domore than we could ever ask orimagine (Ephesians 3:20-21) so thatwe can be a church thats HelpingPeople Discover a Life Worth Living in Jesus!

    Your Pastor by His Grace and Yours,

    Mike Lee, Senior Pastor
